Make a splash by raising cash for local good causes at Swimarathon

Charity swimmers in the Burnham-On-Sea area are being sought to take part in a sponsored Swimarathon.

The annual event is being organised by Burnham Rotary Club and will be held from 10am at Brean Splash Waterpark in Coast Road on Sunday February 10th.

"Teams that participate will retain 45% of their total money raised for their own cause while the remainder will go to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Rotary charities," organiser Jim Tancock told

Teams of up to eight people are needed to swim in relay for up to 50 minutes depending on their ability.

"This is your chance to get your school, club, organisation, business or just your family involved. The pool is divided into six lanes and six teams can swim at the same time - it's a lot of fun and is not a race," added Jim.

For more information, contact Jim Tancock on 01278 786814 or 07790019694 or email him at
